I watched the debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden at 37,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean and a day late.
I think Biden was the clear winner, though Palin didn’t do as bad as was expected considering her interview performances. She did repeat a lot of talking points, but wasn’t half-bad.
The debate’s most prominent aspect was how all the answers were completely unresponsive to the questions asked. Usually there is some effort by the candidates to go off-topic but this debate was really bad in that regard.
One thing that I didn’t understand at all was Palin’s statement that:
We have to fight for our freedoms, also, economic and our national security freedoms.
What exactly are national security freedoms?
Being jetlagged, I still haven’t watched the second Obama-McCain debate.
